Most of the 60 people who have been infected with the strain of salmonella purchased pre-cut melon from either a Walmart or Kroger store, according to a release.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is reporting 60 cases of Salmonella in five states including IL. Whole melons are not included. If you have eaten a contaminated pre-cut melon and experience diarrhea, fever and cramps go see a doctor immediately.

North Carolina has had the most reported cases with 17, followed by Louisiana with 8 and 7 in Michigan, Minnesota and Oklahoma.

Michigan's Department of Agriculture and Department of Health and Human Services have issued a warning about a salmonella outbreak linked to pre-cut melon.

People are urged not to eat pre-cut melons purchased from any Walmart or Kroger store in OH, or in any other affected states.

Walmart and Kroger have removed all cut melon associated with the outbreak.


Illnesses were reported from April 30 to May 28, and the people affected range in age from younger than 1 year old to 97 years old.

Of the 124 cases, 21 people have been hospitalized but no deaths have been reported. Sixty cases have been reported in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri and Ohio.

Elderly people, infants and anyone with weak immune systems are more likely to have a severe illness.

This investigation is expanding rapidly.

Salmonellosis is caused by the salmonella bacteria.
